CM10.1 Official Released for Nexus 7 3G, Unofficial for ZTE Blade

Android 4.2 AOSP development has been pretty widespread. Despite the busy holiday season, developers have found ways to get Android 4.2 AOSP ROMs on devices of every shape and size. Recently, two more devices have been given some Android 4.2 goodness—the ZTE Blade and the Nexus 7 3G.

XDA Senior Member eak1080 has released an official CyanogenMod 10.1 build for the Nexus 7 3G. Given that the Nexus 7 is a Google-controlled device, the CM10.1 build is pretty much complete. All of the main features work, with only a couple of ROM features not working properly. If users want Picasa Sync, there is a fix they’ll need to flash; and the Quick Settings Toggles are a work in progress. Otherwise, the ROM should be pretty stable and usable.

The ZTE Blade port was actually built by MoDaCo’s KonstaT, but posted to XDA by Forum Member android@sam. Even though the ZTE is not a pure Android experience like the Nexus 7, the ROM is still pretty complete. There are only a few things wrong, including:

Bluetooth (& bt-tethering)
Wifi tethering (use an external app, e.g. WiFi
Tether for Root Users)
USB-tethering (use an external app)
FM radio

Despite the small number of things wrong, KonstaT has stated that this ROM is really only for developers, advanced users, and testers as it is not yet a complete ROM. So this probably isn’t 100% ready for daily use, although it could be used that way if Bluetooth is not needed.

For additional details, check out either the ZTE Blade thread or the Nexus 7 3G thread.
